behavior by tom perez while he was ag under the obama administration's doj. >> sean: why don't we go over the inspector general's report, basically misleading the commission on civil rights about the lawsuit, it relates to the new black panther party back in 2008, those were the guys standing outside the polling place in philly banging on batons and wearing military gear, as we're putting up on the screen here. why don't you explain that. >> yes, just to set the context, remember that these thugs were harassing not only people who were voting at that philadelphia precinct in the fall of 2008, but also harassing and hurling poisonous racial epithets and demagoguery and people trying to monitor the voting booth there. it's thanks to brave whistle blowers within the goj, christopher adams and christopher coates the head of the rights section and who blue the whistle, and the monkeying around by many of the appointees, the polittization, and even under the administration, they had agreed that these people were culpable for violating voting rights laws. >> sean: he also refused to honor the su
is not. >> the education department, the obama administration said that we love to have the flexibility to go in and slice the funding as we see fit, as it should be be managed, we don't have that flexibility because of the way the law is written. so there is talk providing that in military areas, but in areas like this it's hard to see unless there's a ground swell for a short-term solution to he restore the money. >> greta: and i thought the republicans offered the flexibility to the white house and white house declined it. >> they offered it on the defense side and it may happen. they said they want it as part of a broader package over the sequester, but we're getting to the point look, the sequester is the law, it's happened, the cuts are implemented. i think there's going to be more pressure to say, wait a second, back this up and find it in the civilian area and find something that shouldn't be cut and we cut it. >> greta: or find $137,000 whatever the number is, in waste in the department of education and they won't. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: on capitol hill, a debate th
for welfare be waived? the house says no. lawmakers passed a bill preventing the obama administration from waiving the work requirement. last summer the obama administration said it would grant waivers to some of the rules but not one state applied. is that an i.e.d. in your pocket? the t.s.a. wouldn't know. agents at newark airport completely outmatched by an undercover fed who stuck an i.e.d. in his pants and slipped past two security check points. even worse, the t.s.a. excuse now, a member of the t.s.a. blog team says it's just too darned hard for agents to find bombs. >>steve: that says it all. >>alisyn: they're busy frisking grandmothers. >>steve: every one of them. >>brian: why can't you straighten this out? it's right by your house. can you just go in there -- >>steve: every time we go through, we pretty much get strip searched. they figure my wife is clearly a terrorist. the top story, the fact that we have a new pope in addition to a pope emeritus. it was interesting, when the news came out, the president of the united states was in front of house republicans, and he said -- the
joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a missile field that the obama administration deactivated just a few years ago when it concluded that north korea didn't pose enough of a threat. if a nuclear missile is ever fired at the united states, this is the best hope to stop it. 30 interceptor missiles which can be launched from ground silos in alaska and california. now the pentagon is deploying up to 14 more. >> the reason we're doing what we're doing and the reason w
leadership. >> also i should point out this network was the network that was blasted by the obama administration for our early reporting on benghazi and what we uncovered in the burned out wreckage in benghazi. so the idea that somehow we are not talking about benghazi is b a surd. we want to call out politicians when they say things that are untrue. with with congresswoman bachmann it's a double edged sword. she fund raises off this stuff. >> we can be transparent with viewers. we had a discussion about this. we know the more oxygen we give it the more she'll raise money off of it. this is one example of a fund-raising notice she sends out. she's one of the most active fund raising e-mail lists. is he sends out five alarm notices, sometimes more than one a day warning they have to contribute or her campaign will fall under the weight of democrats and the liberal media. this was on a different subject. i wouldn't be surprise fd she use this is report and another tomorrow. we're doing our job. >> again, the invitation stands. she can just sit. e she doesn't have to run. we'll talk
in the obama administration will put the political -- their political capital on the line to change this system when there's a the a lot of resistance to do just that. >> manu and shira, thank you for being with us. >> thanks. >> thank you. >>> mitt romney is expected to reemerge this week with a speech speech at the cpac conference. but he is still being taunted for a comment he made. >> there are 47% of the americans who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i will never convince them to take responsibility and care for their lives. >> the man who recorded that was a man who was a bartender that night. he never told the staff that the speech was off the record. the bartender felt like it was his civic duty to release the video. check ed schultz interview tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern. there will be a preview in our next hour. of course, i had no idea what it was. i felt like my feet were going to sleep. it progressed from there to burning like i was walking on hot coals to like a thousand bees that wer
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
700,000 are waiting more than a year. and the obama administration, the number of disability claims waiting over a year has gone up by 2,000%. if you're in new york or los angeles or reno, you're waiting over 600 days for the care and benefits that you deserve. that's why i'm in washington this week and that's why many iraq and afghanistan veterans are in washington. >> say that again if you will, paul. we've heard this, the numbers are becoming more outrageous by the month. what's happening at the v.a. is an absolute disgrace. please talk about, again, how long are wounded warriors having to wait for treatment and care in america? >> well, one of them with me here in washington this week is zach mccowan, he's been waiting 900 days. the system is broken, thousands of veterans are stuck in it. and nobody's really paying attention. we need the president's attention on this now. he's ended the iraq war, but he can't end the v.a. paperwork backlog. right now 97% of v.a. disability claims are on paper. in the year 2013, 97% are still on paper. this is a story this week that really needs
governors and democratic governors and the obama administration says yes, provided we protect the welfare and work requirements. republicans decided to lie about it and say the president and the administration did exactly the opposite of what they actually did. he took the work requirements out of welfare. he just wants a free ride for everybody. he's buying votes with the free welfare, obama money. it's not true at all. it was the opposite of what the administration had done. the republicans thought they had something. mitt romney made a campaign ad out of it. a few days before the election, romney made another campaign ad out of the same untrue thing. it was a lie. it was debunked. it was one of the brighter, more obvious campaigns of a campaign filled with lies. it was the lie you only try in the hottest heat of an election year when you are desperate because nothing else is working. now, bizarrely, in cold, cold march, it is back. republicans are pushing a bill right now in this congress to stop the thing that only existed in mitt romney's campaign ads and was never real. it's not jus
the obama administration. the republican legislation has little pass of passing in the democratically controlled senate. last summer the administration said it would be willing to grant state labor of some of the welfare reform requirements. not one state applied for the waiver. >>> are you ready for a good time? >> she has a figure that makes the number 8 look like the number 1 and a smile that lights up the night. and it all belongs to kid dynamite! >> after all this time, the groundbreaking tv show is headed to the big screen. >>steve: thank goodness. >>alisyn: you've been waiting a long time. sony is making the film expected to keep good times in its 1970's setting. no word on who will be starting in it. >>brian: jimmy walker is here, one of our favorite all-time guests. he says the cast didn't get along at all. i don't know if i can watch a movie knowing in real life they don't get along in sitcom life. and they resent the word "dine-o-mite" >>steve: they didn't like he had one word catch phrase. a live look at the six-foot copper chimney where any moment smoke could rise from t
this thing here now with this obama administration where they treat our enemies with much more concern than they do our friends. >> sean: here we have sequester weekend and he gave morsi 250 million taxpayer dollars and yet, he's closing down the white house. let me ask you about the other three situations i brought up. north korea, russia and china. these are significant. there seems to be willingness to take liberties with this president. >> sean, they're pushing a president they think is a-- is weak. >> sean: is a weak president. >> i hate to say that. >> sean: isn't he weak because he hasn't responded, has he? >> sure, the idea of leading from behind says okay, you want to lead from behind we're going to push you as far as we can push you until we get some kind of reaction and get as much advantage as we can. this whole idea of basically destroying our navy is idiotic when you consider that in china, a great debate is going on as to how big their navy should be. because they want to control the pacific, or some of them do. china, after all, is a dynamic society. there are people in chin
tactical success with the sequester and the overshooting, obvious overshooting by the obama administration has grown a lot of life back as has the gathering of these young people in cpac and i think that despair is a temporary phenomenon. it's going to dissipate very quickly. >> tucker: charles krauthammer, the only person i met who speaks in perfect sentences, perfectly grammatically and perfectly formed. you're not reading that. >> i've been reading off notes written in code-- >> teleprompter. >> sure. >> tucker: coming up-- >> a great job and therefore it should be built and also provides energy security for our country, for north america. it's a no-brainer this should be built. >> tucker: that was max baucus going against the president and saying we need to build the keystone pipeline and ought to do it right now. he's proposed legislation that would give congress the authority to green light that project. we'll talk with iowa congressman steve king for reaction with that. a local new york state sheriff fears gun laws will give criminals an upper hand and explain why we're all at risk
have had unpleasant phone calls and conversations with people in the obama administration, but i had them with the bush administration and that's -- well, it's part of the job. the truth of the matter is, i never really understood the people who get a nasty phone call and then go on tv to talk about it. it's part of the job. you do a story they don't like, you're going to get yelled at and you listen to them or you yell back and then you move on. >> this is what you signed up for. let me ask you about journalists often accused, as you know, about caring less about issues, substance governing and jeb bush on "meet the press" last week raised this point with david gregory. >> before i let you go, who is the hottest florida politician right now? you or marco rubio? who are we more likely to see in the white house? >> man, you guys are crack addic addicts. you really are obsessed with all this politics. >> i have been called a lot of things. >> crack addicts. that's a serious charge. >> i mean, look, obviously, if there's a politician versus a reporter, my first inclination is to go with
the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s
about a week from now? will that happen? the obama administration warning lawmakers it might have to cancel the annual easter egg roll on the first of april. that event happens every year. expected to draw ten of thousands to the white house set for april 1st, just a few days after the could run out of money. white house is saying finally by using these tickets guests are acknowledging this is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the executive office of the president and other federal agencies. if canceled the event will not be scheduled. we'll notify you if there are any modifications of the event. that bass part of the fine print given to members of congress when the invites went out. invites to bob beckel, former campaign manager co-host of "the five." brad blakeman, deputy campaign manager of president george w. bush. good morning to you. who wants to be peter cottontail here? brad, do you want to raise for your hand for that or is that better suted for bob? >> i will raise my hand. bill: what kind of a mess have they gotten themselves into? >> the pr

on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
. from the beginning the obama administration has prompted a batten down the hatches mentality in netanyahu's circle, end quote. joining us news is the author, aaron day-to-day millvid miller. he is now vice president and distinguished scholar at the woodrow wilson international center for scholars. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> we often hear things aren't good between netanyahu and president obama, but how strained are they? >> you know, with the exception of david and dwight eisenhower whose relationship it was probably more strained and tense, this has got to be the most dysfunctional relationship between an american president and an israeli prime minister probably in the history of the relationship. that's saying quite a lot because you've had a couple of pretty dysfunctional pairs. i think the president frankly is in israel because of the intersection of politics on one hand and policy on the other. you know, being good on israel helps him politically with republicans who continue to hammer the fact that somehow he's anti-israel. even among members of his own pa
. barack obama promised the most transparent administration ever. barack obama, you lied. [ applause ] mr. president, we admit it, you won. accept it. now step away from the teleprompter and do your job. is it any wonder there's such a run on guns and ammo for christmas presents a couple months ago, considering politicians' attack on the second amendment. you should have seen what todd got me for christmas. well, it wasn't that exciting. it is a metal rack, a case for a hunting rifle to put on the back of a four wheeler, and then i had to get something for him to put in the gun case, rise? so this go around he has the rifle, i got the rack. [ cheers and applause ] oh, bloomberg is not around, our big gulp is safe, we're cool. shoot, it's just pop, with low cal ice cubes in it. i hope that's okay. my only piece of advice, because i am a mama, my only piece of advice to college republicans, you have to be thinking sam adams, not drinking sam adams. if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in th
of the reasons the obama administration said it's important to continue the spending by the united states here in israel. $3 billion a year in aid and the president got a tour of what some of that money bought. an iron dome missile defense system that had been very effective in guarding southern israeli cities against rockets coming out of gaza. that's one of the things the president has pointed to saying i support israel. i support israel's security and safety by spending money on the iron dome. the charm offensive continues later today. there is going to be a number of ceremonies, a number of private meetings and tomorrow, president obama takes his message directly to the israeli people. he has a speech televised heres0 college students where it's thought he is going to try and make his sell on his views not only on iran, but also on the palestinians and the greater middle east issues here in jerusalem. he's got an uphill battle. now a current poll in israel shows only 10% of israelis say they, quote, like the president. back to you in new york. >> steve: lee land vittert live where he's tal
ideological polarization within the doj's voting rights unit. under both the obama and bush administrations. >> there are two things. one, this predates mr. perez heading the civil rights division and, two, the attorneys that were making the decisions there were the career attorneys. >> reporter: perez's defenders say he has been working hard to clean things up. >> we believe tom perez has restored the integrity back to the entire division, including voting rights. >> and a reminder thomas perez has not been nominated. the conservative blogs are already turning on him and president obama is facing some pressure from minority groups to diversify his cabinet and bring in more minorities. but his candidate, whoever it is, will still have to be confirmed by the senate. we'll have to see at this point. i mean, again, his name is just being floated. we'll see if he is actually nominated, then we get to the confirmation battle. >> it could be a bruising confirmation battle. so far the president is winning. we'll see how he does in this one. thanks very much. >>> coming up a well known political in

-continental missiles. president obama stopped deployment of additional reenforcements when he took office you may remember back in 2009. now administration officials are saying they've reconsidered, in the wake of those escalating threats from north korea. last week north korea officials vowed to bring it to washington after the tough economic punishments. and now move to the persian gulf where an iranian fighter vet approached a u.s. drone in the skies above the gulf according to the pentagon. defense officials say it got within 16 miles of the unarmed drone while it was conducting a classified surveillance flight over international waters on tuesday, but what of the two u.s. military aircraft escorting that drone fired a warning flare and after that the iranian jet broke off pursuit. you may remember in november, the pentagon reported fighter aircraft from iran actually fired at one of our drones, but did not destroy it. u.s. officials maintain they have the right to protect our military assets. well, it could be a preview of the 2016 presidential race. some possible republican contenders speak
